Mr. Sakchai Taenghor (Banglamung sheriff) revealed that the reason that Mr. Amnart cooperated with the officers to arrest his own underling was because he wanted the officers to reduce his punishment even though all drugs belonged to him. However, initially the officers charged both defendants with being in possession of type 1 and type 5 drugs with the intent to sell and were sent to the inquiry official of Huay Yai police station in order to be prosecuted further according to the Thai law.
